The fictional cathedral city of Barchester, England, is the setting for this rich mix of history, romance, and mystery. Narrator Charles Armstrong recounts the story of a quest to uncover a lost ancient manuscript and the secret of the Holy Grail. Armstrong does a sterling job of bringing to life Arthur Prescott, an English professor who lives for his time in the library. The listener quickly gets a feel for Prescott's dry wit and slightly pedantic nature. Armstrong's characterizations of other key characters are strong, helping the listener to follow the plot, including flashbacks to an earlier time. The narration also allows the humor in the writing to shine, further adding to the enjoyment of this pleasurable novel. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
